Space. Today I decided space and time are good things.
I hadn't read my full SB ms since I sent off the partial - I've had space and a manuscript holiday. We both needed a breather.
What a wonderful thing a bit of time is. I've come back to it afresh and nailed a problem right from the off - it's fixable. I've also come up with some layers...more depth. Time and space - good good good.
Almost as good as fabby crit partners who support and hug and help you even when they're under it themselves and are in the midst of writing their own stuff. Don't you just love it when you get your nose back to the writing grindsone? Do you enjoy manuscript holidays?
